Anhinga "Macro" Shot

Anhinga Trail


Canon 100/f2.8 USM Macro Lens

ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/500 second

Manual Metering



Many of the birds at Anhinga Trail are very accustomed to people and photographers, and this Anhinga was very comfortable where it was, and didn't budge as I walked by with my 600 and tripod. So I thought I'd put him to the test, and see how close he'd let me get. So I put on my 100mm macro lens, and took shots as I came in closer and closer. This shot is the result, and is the un-cropped full frame image. The detail in the eye is just exquisite.
